Daily Prompt : Legend

The Gifted Messenger Boy

My grandfather once requested my Dad to help some young boys in his village.  My Dad was an Assistant Secretary in the Ministry of Defense in New Delhi.

My grandpa sent a  fifteen years old boy who he thought was very bright. With this in mind he sent him to New Delhi.

In the beginning he helped my mom with simple chores, within a few months my Dad gave him a job in his office as a messenger boy.

The young man stayed in our house, late in the evening my mom found him trying to learn to read my brother’s book, my mom thought it unbelievable.

His hard work paid him dividends, he privately passed the school courses, and was able to pass the matriculation exam.

He took some small jobs to put him through school, then one fine day he showed up with a degree in Bachelor of Science!
